09:45 AM ET 08.21 | Did Garrett Gilbert do enough in the Longhorns' scrimmage Friday night to retain his starting quarterback job? Texas coaches aren't commenting publicly on the closed scrimmage. But from reports on Hookem.com, the American-Statesman's Internet partner, knowledgeable observers who were there don't believe Gilbert hurt his chances. Sources told Hookem that the junior from Lake Travis fared better Friday than sophomore Case McCoy and freshman David Ash. Those appear to be Gilbert's primary competitors, after redshirt freshman Connor Wood reportedly saw relatively minimal action near the end of the scrimmage.

You like his interception-to-touchdown ratio don't you?

Hard for me to envision any player that led the nation in interceptions (which I believe Gilbert did last year) turning it around and leading a great team the following year

Anything is possible.
The Big-12 needs to spice it up somehow.

Most of his problem last year was the swinging gate offense that the OL used. Wasn't very productive, but at least they saved a ton of money on laundry bills.

When he's playing OU...it's not bad. But I'm hoping it increases for that one game....

UTx should play da U and let Gilbert and Harris see who can throw the most picks.

Mack thinks that in itself warrants a trophy.....and if they dont win one, they'll just have their own made up......BEST ALSO RAN !
